Siberian lilies welcome trains as the peak of flowering approaches at Koshimizu Genseikaen Wild Flower Park

Orange Siberian lilies (Lilium pensylvanicum) and other colorful wild flowers have begun to bloom at the popular tourist spot of Koshimizu Genseikaen Wild Flower Park. According to the Information Center Hana, the peak of the viewing season for Siberian lilies is from the end of June to early July.

Each year, approximately 200 varieties of flowers blossom in the Wild Flower Park, which is located on an 8-km-long stretch of sand dunes between the Sea of Okhotsk and Lake Tofutsu. During the peak flowering period from late June to late July, approximately 40 varieties blossom.

In the vicinity of the JR Genseikaen Station, in addition to the Siberian lilies, yellow daylilies (Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus var. thunbergii) and deep pink rugosa roses (rosa rugosa) have also begun to bloom, adding color to the typical Hokkaido scenery through which the trains pass leisurely with Mt. Shari in the background.
